COVID-19 has been declared a global health emergency. Trusted, clear and effective communication and engagement approaches are critical to ensure that fear, panic and rumours do not undermine response efforts and lead to COVID-19 to spread even more quickly.

You can use the tools and resources in this section to incorporate community engagement and accountability into your COVID-19 operations.
